When YoDerm contacted me and offered a free consultation with their dermatologist, I admit I was intrigued as I have never consulted a dermatologist online and I wasnt sure how it was going to work out. I am in my early thirties and I still suffer from hormonal acne from time to time, also one of my main concerns when it comes to my skin is the hyperpigmentation and dark spots left by previous acne, these are often stubborn and take a while to fade. Even though I do use retinol based products, I always wanted to try prescription strength retinol as I know they are quite strong and the effects can be seen immediately! So when YoDerm offered their consultation I did my research on their panel of dermatologists and immediately accepted!
So what exactly is YoDerm offering? YoDerm offers consultation with dermatologist at fee of 59$ per consultation. All the dermatologists on their panel are US board certified and you can see all the information of them on their website! The way this works is that you need to register, fill out some information regarding your skin history, skin concerns, previous medications which you were on etc. All these questions are extremely important for the doctor to prescribe you the medication for your skin concerns. Next you need to upload three pictures of your face close up left side, right side and facing straight. If you have any other concerns like back acne you can attach the pics for that as well. The form filling takes few mins and is pretty simple and straight forward!
Once the form is submitted it takes few hours for them to assign you to a dermatologist. I got the response pretty quick and was assigned to Dr Kober, MD. The very next day I got my prescription and since I had chosen my preferred pharmacy, the prescription was automatically sent to my pharmacy..its that simple! The best part about the consultation and YoDerm is their customer service, I had some issues with my prescription since I wanted to start a prescription of tretinion, I reached out to them, they not only resolved the issue in a day but also offered a discount coupon which you can show at your local pharmacy while picking up the prescription meds!
Overall I am pretty happy with YoDerm services, it definitely makes life easier if you cannot physically visit a dermatologist due to time constraints or any other reason. YoDerm is so easy to sign up and the prescriptions are legit and I can tell this from my own experience visiting many different dermatologists! If you are interested YoDerm has provided a link for my readers where you get 10$ off on your first consultation using this link - http://yd.md/myvanitytreasures . They also sent me some really cool samples from Cerave, Neutrogena and Aveeno, I think they perfect for travelling and will definitely come in handy in future :)
